Forum: GratefulDead Subject: So, what are the best songs that debuted in the 80s/90/s?

I don't get into the 80's and beyond because there's just too much great stuff from the 70's to check out. I'm still not really interested in checking out entire shows, but would like to hear a few select songs.

I'm mostly interested in originals, but new covers could be interesting as well.

I'd also like to see your favorite versions (links would be appreciated!).

Here are a few songs I know (I'd love links for these as well):

Althea (Love this song)
Shakedown Street (same)
West LA Fadeaway (on the fence)
Black Muddy River and So Many Roads (only listened to the versions from the last show, so that may be affecting my judgement...)

So, what am I missing out on?

This show which is amazing in its own right has a few newer dead songs all performed quite well.

Feel like a stranger (sure it probably came out in 79), Built to Last (which is a good song, but I never go searching to bump this one). When Push Comes to Shove, great song and a really great performance. I totally forgot about it until I reached for this show. Set 2 has a really good standing on the moon and gimme some lovin.

And this gem right here has a great west LA. Again, the whole show is amazing.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd89-07-19.sbd.437.sbeok.shnf

not to mention this show which is stellar but has another great feel like a stranger and West LA. Definitely should here the Believe it or not for a great jerry tune. My favorite latter years other one too...

And as far as I know, you've already heard the best So Many Roads ever played. That version is moving to say the least.

Althea debut was 8-4-79
Shakedown's was 8-31-78
Still in the '70's. So hard to pull away!

Althea,

http://tinyurl.com/3ohlhjm (must listen to, an All-Time 1st set)

Shakedown,

http://tinyurl.com/3td9k98 (one version of many favs, like the fall of '79)

My fave debuts in the last half,

Black Muddy River
Corrina
Eternity
Foolish Heart
Liberty (more lyrics than performance)
Mr Fantasy (best new cover)
So Many Roads (if only for Chicago alone)
Feel Like A Stranger
Victim
VOJ- (best Dylan cover, Desolation Row is a close 2nd)
West L.A.

Can't pull any links at the moment but I thought I would throw these out to stimulate the forum-thought:

Tom Thumb's Blues

Early early Touch

Take Me to the River 1995-04-03 Memphis (Maybe not a perfect rendition but just so damn NICE to hear a new tune.)

If you like the Dylan covers, check out Postcards from a Hanging.

I tell ya, I've never been a big 80's guy nor a big "Brent Guy" and all that, but Just a Little Light is a song I never really gave much time but have absolutely loved hearing by cover bands and various Phil and Friends/The Dead/Furthur lineups in the last 10 years or so.

I agree as well, GD never played it that well but I saw P&F do a version with Warren Haynes singing that really smoked and made me look at the song a whole new way.

That's the version I was going to recommend. There's a certain show I have with Warren where they just nail that song, I believe it goes for over 10 min. I'll try to find it later. Warren did some great work with Phil.

try this Lazy River Road:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd94-03-30.sbd.miller.14832.sbeok.shnf

beautiful Standing On The Moon:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd89-07-07.aud.wiley.7855.sbeok.shnf

shakedown debuted in before the 80's but you said you love it so here's some standouts:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd79-10-25.set1aud-set2sbd.miller.22792.sbeok.shnf

http://www.archive.org/details/gd81-12-31.sbd.bertha-ashley.12784.sbeok.shnf

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1982-04-06.sbd.miller.105237.flac16

I like this Black Muddy River too:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1987-08-11.sbd.gans.miller.92056.sbeok.flac16

Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1991-10-31.mtx.haugh.gems.102251.flac24

good early touch:

The one I saw was early 2000s in or near Maryland, if that helps. My mind is fuzzy those years, right before I got married, I was on kind of a bender.

I'm 99% sure that's when it was from, that does help thanks. No worries! I was in a fuzzy phase of my own a few years after yours

If you had told me I'd spend any part of my morning looking for a specific version of Just A Little Light I'd have said you were crazy, but here it is. It was during the tour that Phil Lesh opened up for Bob Dylsn, I saw several of those shows including the following night at Temple University. They were alot of fun!

Interesting. I was actually thinking of this version from the County Bowl at 14 min long:
http://www.archive.org/details/1999-08-22.paf.schoeps.unknown.13225.sbeok.flacf

I never thought I'd be searching for any version of this song either. 08-22-99 was a great show though. Kimock and Haynes on guitar.Michael Kang and Kyle Hollingsworth from SCI. And Al Schneir from moe joins them for the encore.

Ah, don't get me started on 1999 Phil and Friends... I have a favorite Little Light they did in 2000...October maybe? Forget the date offhand.

This is "Whisky In The Jar" that Jerry pulls out of the hat during a studio rehearsal. He'd been woodshedding with David Grisman's band where I think it came to him first, but here he does the song beautifully. Cheerful banter, too.

It's the one that appeared on "So Many Roads"

Hey, just wanted to say thanks to everyone for responding! Listening to Lazy River Road now and dig it.

Guess it works with the old Jerry voice.

Time to bookmark this page so I can get back to Europe 72 :)
